    A paramedic has been accused of swiping James Gandolfini‘s $3,000 Rolex as he laid dying from a massive heart attack. Claudio Bevilacqua, 43, allegedly stole the Submariner watch from “The Sopranos” star after he collapsed in the Boscolo Luxury Hotel Exedra in Rome during a family trip in June 2013, according to NBC News. He was rushing Gandolfini to the hospital that night when the timepiece disappeared, though it is unclear if it vanished from his hotel room or while the actor was wearing it

    U.S. Rep. James Lankford’s latest ad in his U.S. Senate campaign features comments from Sen. Tom Coburn praising Lankford and criticizing the negative ads being run against Lankford. (SNIP) “Last week I spoke out against political advertisements in Oklahoma unfairly and inaccurately attacking James Lankford. To be fair, I must also comment on the equally disappointing negative advertisements airing in the state by the Foundation for Economic Prosperity, Inc. attacking T.W. Shannon. They are wrong and should be rejected by Oklahomans. “The negative on-air advertisements and untruthful mail pieces against both Lankford and Shannon should stop. This race should be...

    CLEVELAND -- LeBron James tumbled into the wife of star PGA Tour golfer Jason Day while chasing a loose ball Thursday night, causing her to be taken from the floor by stretcher and to a local hospital. James crashed into Ellie Day, knocking her chair over and landing on her as he fell out of bounds with 3:07 left in the fourth quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers' 104-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Day was down for several minutes, and the game was halted while she received medical attention, which included having a brace placed around her neck and...

    “The Rhythm of the Christian Life: Repentance, Faith, and Servanthood” (James 3:13 – 4:10; Mark 9:30-37)As I was reading through the lessons for this day, I was thinking, “What would make a good message for us to hear today, something timely and fitting and that would apply to us all? What is God’s word saying to us through these readings?” And as I mulled those questions over in my mind, what began to emerge from the lessons--particularly from the Epistle of James and the Gospel of Mark--what I began to see is this: These readings portray very vividly and plainly...

    “Taming the Tongue” (James 3:1-12; Isaiah 50:4-10)Maybe you’ve seen it in the news this past week: There are wildfires raging throughout California, burning out of control. Large stretches of forests are being destroyed; homes are being threatened. What started these fires? Who knows? In one case, it might have been a lightning strike, starting with just one or two trees catching on fire and then spreading rapidly. In another case, it may have just been a careless campfire, left unattended. Something small like that can start and spread and cause untold damage. That’s how wildfires go. But did you hear...

    So what’s really going on? We are in a structural depression that began in 2007 and will continue indefinitely. A lot of people don’t understand the definition of an economic depression. They believe that it means a continuous decline in GDP. Put differently: If two quarters of declining GDP mark a recession than a depression must be a long string of declining GDP. But that’s not the definition. A depression does not mean that you have no growth. You can have growth in a depression, it just means the growth is below trend. But all the policy makers think we’re...

The killer showed off a lengthy, thick beard during a court appearance earlier this month, and a prison source has claimed it is a symbol of his new-found faith. The source said Holmes has turned to Islam as a way of justifying his horrific murder spree in an Aurora, Colorado cinema on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded.

    LeBron James and his manager say they believe race played a factor in how the two-time reigning NBA MVP's decision to join the Miami Heat was covered this summer. Neither James nor his manager, Maverick Carter, cited specifics when talking to CNN for a story that aired Wednesday night. In the interview, CNN correspondent Soledad O'Brien asked about "The Decision," the one-hour special on ESPN in which James announced that he would play for the Heat, and some of the negative headlines it generated.

    TORONTO -- SNIPPET: "The so-called Toronto 18 eventually split into two groups after the leaders had a falling out. One thing the groups still had in common was a misdirected paranoia. They worried they were being watched by the authorities, but little did they know two of their trusted confidants were police agents.
